I was talking to my brother tonight and realized that I can’t remember January – April of this year. I know I wasn’t in school or working but for the life of me I can’t remember what I WAS doing. I just honestly can’t remember. I looked back through my posts but they weren’t much help so I guess I look forward to making this year even better. Although better from what I’m not entirely sure. And just for a little bragging rights, last week I baked 400 cookies (3 different kinds), 5 loaves of zucchini bread, 4 batches of fudge, dipped 70 pretzel sticks in chocolate and nuts, made a pan of cream cheese cookies brownies, and successfully experimented in making homemade peppermint oreo cookies. It was a busy three days and I should have taken a picture but trust me when I say it tasted and smelled fantastic.
We’re having a Halloween party for the 8-11 yr. old girls I’m a leader over at church this week. I decided to do something a little different in the way of an invitation so I borrowed this idea I found and voila!
Later today or tomorrow I’ll start on the first round of pumpkin sugar cookies. I love Halloween!
I went ahead and got a jump start on the holiday baking this year and spent the whole weekend making cookies and fudge. And let me tell you, I’m glad it’s over. I love the idea of making goodies for people. I love giving them away. I don’t even mind the actual baking. But I HATE the decorating. So tedious and boring. Decorating 5 dozen cookies takes longer than I would like and I was so grateful fudge only takes 10 minutes. I had planned to take pictures of different stages of the baking process but of course, I completely forgot until the end when I was starting to arrange the plates. But don’t they look good? I hope they tasted as good as they looked!
